    Many in television talk about the so-called Seinfeld Curse. The Seinfeld Curse is about the cast members of that show bombing out when going onto shows of their own. I'm not sure about the existence of any Seinfeld Curse but there damn sure is a Cheers curse. With the exception of Kelsey Grammer who played the same character on Frasier as he did on Cheers, every Cheers cast member has bombed out doing another show. Ted Danson, George Wendt, Shelley Long, and Rhea Pearlman all had clunkers but the biggest clunker of all was Kirstie Alley's Veronica's Closet.

    Veronica's Closet was one of the lamest and most unfunny sitcoms of all time. It was garbage from day one. Only the presence of the short-lived (and even worse) Brian Benben Show prevents Veronica's Closet from winning the title of worst sitcom of the 90's. What's most amazing about Veronica's Closet was that it actually managed to last for three seasons on NBC. Living proof that either TV viewers have no taste or the NBC programming department ran out of ideas and had nothing else to replace the show with. Co-star Ron Silver wisely departed the show after two ill-fated seasons. He probably wishes he'd never signed onto the project in the first place. As for Kirstie Alley, the show was her jump the shark moment. It destroyed her career and she went on an eating binge and gained about 200 lbs. Maybe she can do another sitcom and call it Fat Actress. Oops, wait a minute, she did. Well I guess if Ms. Alley will do trash like Veronica's Closet she'll do anything.

    Flush this one down the toilet where it belongs.
